City Asks Residents for Input on Design of New Park


By: Sharon Aron Baron

The City of Tamarac is building a new park and they’re asking residents for their input into the design and development.

The new six acre park, called Waters Edge, is slated to open in 2017 and will be located east of University Drive south of NW 61 Street  – behind the Broward Teacher’s Union Building.

According to the City, due to its size and location, the parcel lends itself to development as a primarily passive park, with some elements for play and sports activity, however, residents may believe there is room for more.

Some of the park features that are under consideration include multipurpose pathways, picnic shelters, a playground, basketball court and a sand volleyball court.  Residents are encouraged to to submit their ideas to the City by August 23rd, 2015.  Submit your suggestion here.  You can even add photos to your submission letting City officials know what you would like to see in your new park.

    That parcel of land had been vacant for years. Back in the day, Behring had office trailers there.
